EDMONTON – Some areas in northern Alberta are expected to be hit by 10 to 15 centimetres of snow Friday.

As of 1 p.m., Environment Canada had the following areas under a snowfall warning: Bonnyville, St. Paul, Cold Lake, Lac La Biche, Fort McMurray., Fort MacKay, Peace River, Fairview, High Prairie, Manning, Wabasca, Peerless Lake, Gift Lake, and Cadotte Lake.

Environment Canada says heavy snow is expected; there may also be a mix of rain and snow over some of the areas. It’s believed the snow will gradually taper off from the west as the weather system moves into Saskatchewan.

Motorists are advised to adjust their driving to the conditions, which may include reduced visibility and slippery highways.

One multi-vehicle collision on Highway 63 has already been reported near Mariana Lake, where the weather is said to be poor with heavy snow and wet road conditions.
